Although historically my sewing tapers off after summer, I’ve decided this year to participate in Colette Patterns Fall Palette Challenge. The goal – make a unified palette of items within 8 weeks!
For the challenge, I’m using all fabrics from my stash. They are (clockwise from top left corner): super pale peach silk charmeuse from Denver Fabrics, large check gingham shirting (source unknown), green stretch twill from Denver Fabrics, and blue/black wool houndstooth from Fabric Row in Philly.
My first project up will be New Look 6909,View C. I saw this dress in a display at JoAnn’s and knew I had to make it. The fabric will work perfectly, as it’s both warm and work appropriate!
Second up, Clover from Colette Patterns in the green twill. I was so excited to see Colette do a pants pattern, especially since pedal pushers/clamdiggers/capris have been on my to-sew list for ages. If I have time, I’d love to do a pair in black as well.
Thirdly, Sew Liberated’s School House tunic in the gingham. This is a pattern that’s been on my wish-list for ages and I think the fabric will be a great fit. I’m leaning toward the shirt length version.
If I have time (and I assuredly won’t) I’m aiming to use the silk charmeuse for a Cinnamon Slip.
So there’s my pieces for the Fall Palette Challenge. I’ll keep ya’ll updated as I go along, and let me know if you’re playing too!
